Zuckerberg and Scrabble

A recent excellent HBR article that suggests  “business does not need the humanities, but humans do. “ This short HBR blog posting makes the case that we are creating a culture where “big data begets small minds “ and we run the risk of favoring the “unprepared overachiever.”

The writer makes a compelling case for this by sharing a story of Mark Zuckerberg’s struggle with a game of Scrabble, against a teenager, and his ultimate coping strategy.   Maybe a little less technology and a little more liberal arts might be a better strategy.  Check it out and see if you agree.
